Material studied.

China: Hunan: 1 ♂, 1 ♀, Yanling County, Nanfengmian, 26°18'N 114°00'E, 1600 m, 06.VI.2015, Peng, Shen, Tu & Zhou leg. (SNUC).


The original description is based on a male from Jiangxi. The previously unknown female sexual characters are as follows: posterior margin of tergite VIII convex (Fig. 2A); sternite VIII (Fig. 2B) weakly transverse, posteriorly broadly convex; tergite IX (Fig. 2C) undivided anteriorly. The above record from Hunan represents a new province record. For illustrations of the habitus and the male sexual characters see Assing (2014: figures 12-16).
